It was revealed yesterday that Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to PC (including Xbox Game Pass for PC) on August 14th, but nothing was mentioned about a release date for the console version/s.
But don't worry - the game has already been confirmed as coming to Xbox One, and according to a recent interview with Xbox boss Phil Spencer, it looks like it's heading to Xbox Series X as well.
Speaking during the recent Gamelab Live 2020 keynote fireside, Spencer revealed that Flight Sim is one of the games he's particularly looking forward to playing on the next-gen system:
"I will say a game that just every time I see it is so stunning, is Microsoft Flight Simulator. And for us at Xbox and Microsoft Gaming, Flight Sim has a long history inside the company.
The studio at Asobo is doing amazing work on that - it's such a technology powerhouse that game with what it's using in terms of cloud compute to deliver the experiences they have, and I think that game on Series X is going to just be jaw-dropping and I can't wait to experience that on the next-gen."
So, while Microsoft hasn't officially come out and announced that Microsoft Flight Simulator is heading to Xbox Series X just yet, it seems a safe bet to suggest it's on the way. With any luck, we'll hopefully get more details on this (and a release date) at the Xbox Games Showcase next week.
Are you looking forward to playing Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X? Let us know below.
I remember playing the old Microsoft Flight Simulator games on Windows 95/98. I remember struggling to work out how to even take off, the manual was larger than most of my books. (I was a kid then I should add)
Can't wait for this. I expect I'll spend as much time in menus and reading up on things as I will actually flying, but that's half the fun with these games anyway.
@pip_muzz Absolutely! Failing to even to get off the ground (and crashing when you do) is what it's all about.
I wonder if Xbox will sign partnership agreements with hardware manufacturers to bring licensed yokes and pedals to Series X. Playing Flight Sim with a controller just doesn't feel right. Right? 😮
Don't be a **** Phil, let us Xbox One X players play it too.
Next you'll tell me the boss of Ford Motor said the new Mustang is really cool and he can't wait to drive one himself!
Or maybe the producer of the next Disney Wars film really likes it and looks forward to watching it.
No no, next you'll talk about how the CEO of EA loves the microtransactions in FIFA.
Maybe Spencer is totally genuine here, but it means nothing to me because it's his company. He couldn't possibly say anything but that he likes it!
@gcunit What? It’s already confirmed for Xbox One, as the article states.
@Heavyarms55 He’s just saying the game is visually impressive, which is an objective opinion if you’ve seen any of the screenshots or videos - the game is beautiful.
